Default Main cause of Murrays subpar 2014?

What do you think?

I think the initial mistake was rushing back for the AO and not training and getting in match shape and being dead on his feet after 2 sets from January-May but also a lack of motivation to play and try his hardest in all events, Murray has got into a pattern in the last 2 years where he thinks he can just turn up at slams and play his best tennis and it has worked to some extent but he needs to start putting that effort in every week like he used to.

He played poorly against Dimitrov but his good performance in slams from 2012-2014 have only coated over his lack of effort in other tournaments when he seems disinterested sometimes, his appetite for slams only when he hadn't won one and had lost in 4 finals was understandable but now he's won 2 he needs to get back to grinding away week to week.

I would hope that his drop in ranking and brutal loss at Wimbledon inspires him to play properly in Torono/Cincy especially, i don't want to see another half arsed effort there before the USO.

People can play tennis better than he can, and he loses to these people

I wonder if it's as simple as that. He claims he feels 100% and he's had enough matches to get back into form.

I think the loss of Lendl has been the biggest factor that's affected all aspects of his game. In fact he appears to have regressed to the the pre-Lendl Ray in all his petulant and inconsistent glory.

Being arrogant enough to kick Lendl to the kerb, assuming he'd sucked all the knowledge out of his head and didn't need him any more. Replacing him with a worthless WTA mug for publicity purposes was the final nail in the coffin.

Default Re: Main cause of Murrays subpar 2014?

I think it's a combination of 2 and 3 (but not 1). He may have returned from back surgery too soon, then lost matches, then the coaching situation (at a point when he really could've used some help), then lost matches and it's snowballed to what happened today.

What? It only seems subpar because Murphy's 2013 accomplishments were beyond rational human comprehension.

He skipped FO last year because of injury but was still able to get into form in a short time for wimbly and play like a beast. He's a mental mess because Whisperer Lendl cannot be found. Can't imagine the absolute culture shock he's experiencing now because of her needing to "rearrange" everything. They believe they do that so well.

I guess life under Lendl is tough regime, he wants to get away from him as well. Its slack life under Mauresmo, Murray dislike to be worked.

He only starts to play tennis on breakpoints which is too late.

Default Re: Main cause of Murrays subpar 2014?

I think it`s a case of losing Lendl/back injury/being too satisfied after Wimby win, which together led to this situastion. He`ll have to dig deep to find his motivation to work as hard as he can at all times again.

Default Re: Main cause of Murrays subpar 2014?

Rafael Nadal mentally crushed andy murray at Rome 2014 and then hammered the nail into the coffin at Roland Garros. andy murray didn't even face a break point during their last meeting due to Rafael Nadal's sublime serving (76% first serves in for the match and won 91% behind it), and won almost twice as many points as andy murray in the match to go on to lead andy murray 15-5 in the h2h (and 7-2 in the slam h2h). That eats away at you. Didn't surprise me to see andy murray lose to grigor dimitrov. Losing to Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros in either one-sided defeats or 5th set losses can destroy a player's career (robin soderling is practically dead, roger federer is no longer a threat at most slams, dj hasn't won a slam since Roland Garros 2013, andy murray lost at his newfound pet slam).
